TOMORROW: College Radio Day!

collegeradioday

Tomorrow, October 1st, is an extremely exciting day. This is not just because it marks the first day of the spookiest and most pumpkin-infused month, but also because it’s College Radio Day!

Founded in 2010, College Radio Day aims to raise awareness of the power and importance of college radio as a medium to bring the community together and highlight local or underrepresented artists.

From 1:30 to 4:30PM WDCV will be chilling on Britton Plaza providing a variety of entertainment, including an open mic, arts and crafts, WDCV merch, and possibly even balloons. Clearly this event is unmissable. See you there!

WDCV Open House – Alumni Weekend – Friday June 14th 2-4pm

wdcv50thpostercrop2

Last year was WDCV’s 50th Anniversary but we are still celebrating! We know that there are alumni coming back every year who still love WDCV and all of the time they spent behind the mic.

If you are coming back for Alumni Weekend, please stop by the station from 2-4 pm for an open house on Friday June 14th.  All alumni are welcome, even if they weren’t a DJ when they were here so bring your friends.

We will have free buttons and stickers and we still have some t-shirts available in varying sizes (only $10!).

 

Finally, if you haven’t filled out our Alumni Survey yet, please do so!  We would love to hear about what you are currently up to and all about your time at WDCV!

 

2-4 p.m. WDCV Open House

Stop by WDCV’s Studio for a tour of our digs in the lower level of the HUB.  Check out our timeline of WDCV’s history in the hallway leading up to the station.  The studio will be open for Alumni DJs so bring some music along or just get behind the mic again and tell Dickinson & Carlisle what you have been up to. Mingle with alums and current DJs, eat some snacks, reminisce, tell us secrets about WDCV that we never would have known……

 

Keep connected with us!

Come out to see Mad Men play at Spring Fest 4/20/13

858489_484937748238708_1417005247_oWDCV is bringing Mad Men to play at Springfest!  If you have seen them before, you know what an amazing show they put on.  If you haven’t seen them, then it is even more important for you to come out to see this FANTASTIC band. The band is a fusion of funk, jazz and hip hop and brings a lively stage presence.  They will play from 11:30am-1pm Saturday April 20th at Spring Fest on Morgan Field.  See you there!

Token Prospects at Dickinson

Token Prospects is indie soul band made up of five members, four of which are Dickinson graduates: Dwight Dunston, class of 2010; Josh Rohrbaugh, class of 2010; Andre Lekich, class of 2010; and Jeremy Keys, class of 2011. Robert Ricket graduated from La Salle Univiserty in 2011.

Token Prospects is definitely something you should check out if you prefer a more laid back feeling to music. They build upon a steady acoustic guitar line that often converses with piano, strings, and a variety of other instruments creating a spectacular relaxed, soul filled background which leads the vocals through their melodic journey. They create an original sound that invokes a peaceful feeling that could make anyone forget about their troubles and just enjoy the music.

Token prospects will be making a trip down to Dickinson college where they will be opening for Parachute on April 5th at the Anita Tuvin Schlechter Auditorium for the MOB spring concert.

Visit to the Brooklyn Flea Record Fair

While traipsing about NYC this weekend I was able to stop by the Brooklyn Flea Record Fair and see some of our favorite labels.  It was a big hipster, music-nerd fest and I was in complete heaven.  Also, WDCV Station Manager alum (and current DJ) Chris Bratton was in the area too so we got so we got to geek out on music together.  Also, even if you don’t like records, you should go for the food.  Good god…..the food!!!
